Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (leg) out at least two weeks

Saturday December 12th, 2015

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal will miss at least two weeks due to a leg injury, the team announced on Saturday.

Beal was a late scratch for the Wizards’ 107–105 loss to the Pelicans on Friday due to soreness in his right leg. An MRI later revealed that he has the beginnings of a stress reaction in his lower right fibula.

The timetable given will keep the 22-year-old sidelined through Christmas.
